rainbowuteI don't really listen to the groundhog.  Summer is on the way!  It's been a while since I've checked in but we've been super busy with work and getting ready for Patrick's CDT Thru Hike and my move to Bridge Campground for hosting this summer.  I am really looking forward to this, however, I have a real nostalgia for Ute Campground

uteWhen we first pondered the idea of work camping or camp hosting, we tried to do the pros and cons thing.  For example, on the one hand, it's great to have a spot or a spot and a paycheck.  On the other hand, it's difficult to stay in the same place for five months.  That sort of thing.  There was definitely plenty of disucssion about the nuts and bolts of the thing, and when it came to a remote National Forest campground, we also had to consider the impact of living outside the cell phone and internet zone.  Yikes.  As we dug into our San Juan National Forest experience, the philosophy and attitude of the people around us became the biggest "pro" on the list.

After camp hosting at camps located between Pagosa Springs and Durango, I admit to being addicted to KSUT our local public broadcasting station.  I developed favorites among the on air personalities.  We hadn't had radio in months, so this was pretty amazing.  The station's programs and music were the perfect balance of local and national with a terrific focus on Colorado musicians.
